iPod Shuffle clone going cheap

At first glance, you might think that the MP3 player on the right is a bona fide second generation iPod Shuffle, but one look at its $14 sticker price gives the game away. In addition, the Play/Pause button has been placed incorrectly, while the connector on the same side as the headphone jack is sorely missing. At that price, it will probably come with at least 1GB of memory and offers MP3 playback at the very least. Since it is assembled in China, chances are it will support the same range of audio formats found on other knockoff products. If you catch cheap iPods on eBay, it is best to be extra wary. More often than not, taking the chance of picking up an iPod on the cheap often ends in tears and regret when a clone arrives instead.
